Viral Photos of Utah Wedding in the Sky
The photographs of a wedding held floating 400 feet up in a Utah canyon have been causing a stir.
The images not only show base-jumping “flower girls” launching themselves off a cliff (complete with flowers in their chutes), they also capture the special moment that the father of the bride conquered his fears to give his daughter away suspended in mid-air in a space-net.
Ryan Jenks and Kimberly Weglin are passionate about slack-lining (a type of tight-rope walking with looser lines) and decided to have a themed wedding to top them all.
The ceremony was held in a specially constructed web above a canyon in Moab, and was captured by photographer Abbi Hearn in November.
Since the photos have emerged they have been causing quite a stir—especially one picture of the bride’s father.
Kimberly Weglin describes how her father struggled to walk up the specially made “aisle” made of webbing, before finally arriving, a look of triumph and joy captured on camera.
